It rained so I donned waterproof- then got too hot. Got drawn into the cave and retreated to de-layer. Andrew led to the next clip then I went for the top- going right was a mistake. Good but hard! New guidebook has this as a 5- which was a relief as we felt like Laurel and Hardy as we struggled up a 4. a dog ate my sandwiches and I dropped my watch and it broke. Days of adventure!

Climbed the crack in the corner whereas the guide suggested sticking more the the RHS wall. was not bold enough to climb the roof section on lead but gutted as I then managed it with relative ease on top rope!

Fantastic climb, no problem apart from skinning knee manteling on to first ledge. Under the overhang get right up under the roof, establish a wide stance with legs spread on either wall, feel overhead for the bolt.

There's a pigeon nest about two thirds of the way up in the crack so didn't finish the climb. The fledglings should be old enough to fly soon though...

Richard Gilbert 06/Apr/09 Lead

Lowered off first attempt from under the roof, having clipped above the roof. Hadn't looked at the topo and didn't know to move right - so tried to go left and then tried direct. Managed on second attempt having left the 'draw in situ. Still a hairy move stepping out right to the final bolt and mantelling up to the lower off.
